Focussing on my water this week - did good today and I'm hoping it brings back some energy because I have zero.
Tori - we finally moved from the house in the country thank god but it was a long haul. It took us just over a year but everything happens for a a reason because after we sold we found the perfect house and we are loving it!
Mike - it sux but thats exactly how I feel - you nailed it lol

Just a quick update. Yesterday food wise was good. I stayed under 1700 calories, a big improvement. Water could have been better, but I fell asleep on the couch and don't like to drink too much before going to bed. Too many trips to the potty in the middle of the night if I do. However!! I only had one bottle of Diet Dew yesterday. I could have had more, but went with water at supper. Yay me. Okay. Busy busy day today. Probably won't be able to check in until later tonight.
Happy Tuesday Y'all!!
Mini Goal Weight-??
Ultimate Goal Weight-TBD
When life throws you curveballs, it's up to YOU to decide whether or not you swing away or go down looking. I'm choosing to swing away.
Yesterday was a yes and no for goal number #2. I did what I could to keep her in line but she just wouldn't comply. I guess I can't give my lil sis too much of a hard time because I know she's going to have a great week this week!
Mike: 1) water (100oz/day) yes
2) keep Tori in line (yes & no)
It was 46 degrees when I got up to go swimming this morning (at an outdoor pool). The pool is heated, but it was chilly enough outside that I considered not going. I went, though, and was glad I did. And maybe I shivered off a few extra calories!
I saw a great poster yesterday. It said, "Procrastination. You're not just putting off the work. You're putting off the results."
Robin - I haven't heard of Skinny B cereal. Let us know how you like it.
Ian - good to see you. I don't get the paladin riddle at all.
Tori - you had a great day yesterday - keep it going. If we both do well this week, Mike can take credit for us both.
Kocia - if you get stuck on an extra activity, find something on youtube. There are all kinds of workouts, yoga, dance, etc. Epixi tried to get us doing Bollywood dancing. I tried it a couple of times - it was fun - but I'm a real klutz when it comes to dancing.
